Ed Fox, band manager, said, the people in favor of two separate elections, one for band chief, and one for the band's 12 councillors. Under the old system, a single election was held to fill the thirteen positions, with any one of the men running, being eligible for either chief or councillor. The change in procedure is expected to bring about more selective voting. CAST OFF FOR WINNIPEG - The cast of the Lethbridge Playgoers' entry in the Dominion Drama Festival in Winnipeg next week, left the city early this morning. The production of Brendan Behan's two-acter, The Hostage, will be staged by the Lethbridge troupe Monday, the first performance in the week-long festival. Director of the play is Dick Mells. None Out On System Of Demerit Gordon Taylor, Alberta minister of highways and transport announces that during the first Ml month of operation of the driver demerit system no person in the province reached 15 demerit points. One person reached more than eight demerit points, and a warning letter was sent to him. Fifteen demerit points brings an automatic licence suspension. During the month of April, there were 4,087 convictions, totalling 10,907 demerit points. While there were no suspensions arising out of the demerit system, there were 31 suspensions ordered by the minister of highways and transport and 149 suspensions ordered by the court. In addition, 11 licences were suspended for medical reasons and 136 were suspended pending receipt of a financial responsibility certificate. To Be Submitted June 1 Board's Brief On Education Ready For Worth Commission In other voting, the peoplo elected to keep councillor terms at the present four years. This brings about a complete change in band management after the specified term. The band also voted unanimously not to allow non-Indians to obtain grazing leases on the reserve. Mr. Fox said,' "The only lease land given out to non-Indians is farm land." (There are about 100,000 acres of land on the reserve under cultivation, and about 90 per cent of this is leaces to non-Indians.)

Open Saturdays Evenings by Appointment _PHONE 327-2822 By HERB JOHNSON Herald Staff Writer The submission of the Lethbridge school District 51 to the Worth Commission on Educational Planning has been made public. The brief, which will be submitted to the commission when it sits in Lethbridge on June 1-2, was prepared by the board of trustees, a professional committee, and Professor J. B. Perce-vault of the University of Lethbridge. Some of the points contained in the brief are:  Alberta society today is characterized by an emphasis on productivity, consumption and accumulation of mater i a 1 things. Certain trends evident in today's society will continue. Industrial technology will continue to increase man's productivity and leisure time. The problems of the large urban centre will continue.  Main will learn to control technology. Emphasis will be placed on the social sciences so that man will learn to respect his fellows. Society, industry and education must leam to work together so the products of technology are available to all.  Tf the challenge of the last decades of the 20th Century is to assure that man begins to control technology for the benefit of man, then the social institution, the school, must remain.  The products of a technolo-, gical society will be available to assist the teacher, but they cannot educate the student in learning inter - personal relations. Education must become a humanizing agent in society. Schools provide the physic a 1 setting for human interaction.  Willi increased leisure time, education must assume the responsibility of the development of the individual rather than the task of job preparation. The school must become a community resource available to all citizens of all ages who wish to pursue education as preparation for a different vocation or purely for self-development.  The school must remain because an increasingly sophisticated society will demand an increasingly sophisticated citi- zenry. A m o r e sophisticated technology will require re-educating and re-training. AIMS OF EDUCATION  The graduate of. our schools must command enhanced communicat i o n skills. He must be able to receive, analyze and interpret data from many sources. Above all he must be able to express his ideas, interpretations and feelings in a meaningful manner to others. No longer can the learner - student, the product of our schools, be the passive recipient of other's ideas through the mass media. o The graduate must have assimilated a developing value system by which to live. This does not mean that a particular value system must be taught and instilled within the individual. Rather, it means that the individual becomes a valu i n g person.  Implicit in becoming a valuing individual is that the person become logical.  Proficiency in the tradi- tional three Rs will still be an aim of educ a t i o n. However, there will be the recognition that these arc skill areas upon which the broader aims of education are based. O As a final aim, the student - graduate will need to know how knowledge is generated and how to become involved in the search for knowledge, not the mention of facts. CURRICULUM  If relevancy of learning experiences is to be a goal, then curriculum formation as well as implementation must lie within the prerogative of the district and school. The province will have the responsibility of ensuring that the needs of the broader society are met.  The student will have a gr'owinc responsibility in curriculum development if the curriculum is to be relevant. Crucial social issues such as pollution and peace will form the foci of new courses of study. The student will assume more responsibil i t y in determining his own interests.  The role of the teacher and teaching must be accurately defined.  The time for preparation of teachers must be a minimum of four years for initial certification. 0 Teacher education programs must examine the skills which a teacher must possess and ensure that those candidates for certification command the competencies necessary for initial teaching experiences. FINANCING O The province must develop a broader support base for tlie nnancing of education. O The local community must continue to support education to the end of high school.  The province must support education through a formula that ensures local autonomy in the development of an educational program. O The local board must have complete autonomy in the expenditure of revenue. The Southern Region, Cana-| dian Mental Health Association, is in need of volunteer workers for the summer months for its established programs for psychiatric patients in Lethbridge. Volunteers and drivers are needed for Monday and Tuesday afternoons. Volunteers are not restricted as to age, and youth of the community who have time to offer assistance will be welcome. Throughout the past year the youth of Lethbridge have assisted the CMHA extensively in volunteer programs and their continued service would be of tremendous assistance during the summer months, according to Molly Mitchell, executive officer, southern region, CMHA. Anyone who has two hours a week to assist as a volunteer driver on Monday or Tuesday afternoons is invited to phone I Mrs. Hazel Ross, 327-1515 or I the CMHA office, 327-0100. 1,000 Attend Art Exhibit More than 1,000 persons attended the recent Arts Exhibition in the Wilson Junior High School gymnasium.

QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC 324 5th St. S. Ph. 328-7684 Above Capitol Furniture EDDY DIETRICH. C.D.M. He added, however, it certainly is a break for married students and will undoubtedly encourage more of them to attend university. The change in regulations approved by the cabinet Wednesday will allow married students with no children who are both attending a post-secondary institution to apply for aid as single students. This will allow them to receive a greater portion of aid as an outright grant rather than a repayable loan. A single student needing $1,-200 in assistance receives an initial $200 loan and the remaining $1,100 on the basis of 50-per-cent grant and 50-percent loan. The outright grant-is $500 and the $700. Under the old plan, a married student would receive a loan of $700 with the remaining $500 split between a loan and a grant. This meant he got an out right grant of $250 and a loan of $950. Other changes allow the awarding of $100 provincial scholarships to students entering any post-secondary institution, rather than just universities or colleges. Summer session loans have been raised to $500 from $300. Disadvantaged persons now will be able to take only $1,-000 in loans in order to receive maximum assistance of $5,000 instead of the previous $2,500 in loans.
